Storytelling is at the heart of writing.

Stories make logical and emotional connections with the reader’s experience. They lead us forward, making us want to learn more. Even such an everyday type of writing as an instruction manual tells a story in that it entices us with the promise of success in the use of our new equipment.

What is your story? I’d love to help you tell it. I will listen to you, digging deep to find out what you want to say, why you want to tell this story. I will ask you who you are talking to and how you want to speak to them. I will consider with you what form of presentation might be best for what you want to achieve. I will help you work out the steps involved in getting there.

I will respect your voice, your opinions, your expression.

What kind of story do you want to tell?

What does writing cost?

Rates for professional writing vary vastly, depending on the experience of the writer, whether the writer is sourced through an agency and the type of project required. For some projects, writers commonly charge a rate per word; for others it might be a flat rate (e.g. delivering a set number of blog posts per month) or an hourly rate.
